Flux Pavilion is an entity that has shed it’s human name, Joshua Steele, and gone on to co-found his own label, Circus Records, and be nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2012 award. He adopted the moniker after his release “Cheap Crisps” in 2008. Known best perhaps for tracks “I Can’t Stop,” and his remix of DJ Fresh’s “Gold Dust,” Steele has a unique brand of electronic artistry that attracts some major players in the music world today. He’s collaborated with hip hop stars such as Riff Raff and Childish Gambino, as well as electronic stars like Snails, Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, NGHTMRE, and Doctor P, a childhood friend and co-founder of Circus Records.
Though he has only one studio album, Tesla (2015), his work has garnered the support of a wide audience throughout the US and the UK where he’s headlined two and three tours respectively. He has amassed a four point two six million person Soundcloud following, rivaling electronic superstars like Zeds Dead, and indeed surpassing the famed Datsik. His latest tour is worldwide, and entitled “Around the World in 80 Raves,” which he is about five months and fifty-five shows into. Check out his most recent releases on Soundcloud!
